Students Prep for Success in College and in Life

PALM SPRINGS, Ca.

More than 300 scholarship recipients are attending a three-day Student Leadership Conference at the CSUSB Palm Desert Campus.  The three day event starting June 21st till June 23rd, gives students a head start in college, giving them resources and helping them navigate the college-going process.  

During the conference, more than 35 local business, education and community partners lead workshops, participate on panels, serve as speakers, and facilitate networking sessions. This is giving students an opportunity to networking with future partners and businesses.  These speakers are incorporating the "Leading with Purpose" message to encourage students to pursue their passions.

"We’re committed to making sure all students can succeed in college, career and life," Shelia Thornton said, The Coachella Valley Economic Partnership vice president of Workforce Excellence.  "It’s a basic principle: if we want Coachella Valley students to succeed in college and achieve high-paying careers, we have to support their financial path through college and help them manage the resources and find meaningful work experiences so they can contribute to the economic vitality of the Coachella Valley."

The CVEP Student Leadership Conference helps scholars learn what it takes to achieve success both in school and afterward.  It also helps beat the "Summer Melt" phenomenon.
